Jack responding well to therapy!

Friday 9:00am

Bloorview Rehab’s Brain Injury Program is really incredible and Jack is responding well.  Today’s picture shows Jack sitting in a bunch of lit up balls in a special therapy room with low lighting, specifically designed to relax and sooth children.  The staff are wonderful here and he has made a lot of progress this week.  He can now take 7-8 steps on his own, is using more words, and sleeping less.  His sweet little personality is also coming back, which is great to see.  We have been told that it could take up to 3 or 4 months for his personality to fully come back, in large part due to the trauma of surgery.  He is still dependent on his wheelchair, but he has now figured out how to make it go and he’s really enjoying wheeling away from me!  Jack has physio, occupational and speech therapy this morning and will then be heading home for a long weekend at 2pm!  I am SO proud of him for how hard he is working in therapy.  He often works to the point of exhaustion and often falls asleep after his sessions.

And while Jack is off to physio therapy right now, I am off for a run!  So both Jack and I will be working our legs this morning  🙂

Have a great weekend!
